Kanye West has kept a low profile in recent weeks, but like a true fashion fan, he couldn’t miss Balenciaga’s Spring 2023 catwalk. It was held in New York City for the first time since 2003. Yeezy is a Balenciaga fanatic and he was recently spotted in a New York runway.
Ye was photographed alongside Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue. Offset was also spotted alongside Ye. He has been promoting Demna Gvasalia’s company alongside his wife, Cardi B, for quite some time.
Cameras caught West and Offset catching up at the event, sharing smiles and laughs. They likely had a lot to talk about, as it’s been rumored that Offset has been feuding with the other 2/3 of Migos after unfollowing them on Instagram. Akademiks however claimed it’s all a publicity stunt to promote Takeoff and Quavo’s new single, “Hotel Lobby.”
Both rappers wore layers, layering leather jackets over hoodies and trousers, while Yeezy, of course, wore his signature boots. The “Blood On The Leaves” rapper took a seat near Wintour’s and pulled out his camera to record the distinctive creations on display.
Balenciaga’s staff was as inventive this year, sending out mounds of bogus cash to would-be attendees in place of last year’s invitations, which came in the form of an unused iPhone 6. Demna also had his emblem blasted onto some of New York’s most prominent monuments, including the New York Public Library and Union Square.
